The Newton Online Challenge has morphed from a popular street event into an online challenge that still includes plenty of hard work, excitement and rewards. But you get to skip race day queues, traffic dodging, porta john lines and race pack collection confusion. Same grand brand. New format that suits your lifestyle.

The Newton Online Challenge is scheduled to run between 14th and 28th January 2019. Because you call all the shots, you don’t have to show up anywhere you don’t want to be. Run whenever you want, wherever you want, and from any part of the globe. You set the schedule. Select from 10km, 21.1k or 42.195km categories and then double check your favourite GPS tracker to make sure it captures readings that prove you ran. Sounds easy, right? It is!
